First-time watercooler: GTX780 and i7-4770k in a Corsair Obsidian 900D - ADVICE NEEDED

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

So I've bit the bullet on going watercooling with my new rig, but my main issue is that, despite wanting do some impressive cooling, I have very little clue of what I'm doing watercooling-wise...
This is what I've picked out so far, but I am very open to suggestions, both for the parts I've picked, and tubing/fittings, which I have no idea about.



What needs cooling:

- MSI GTX780, times 1 (so far, will probably be putting a second one in there shortly)
- Intel i7-4770k, very likely delidded, no bare-die though.

What do you guys think? I'd like the 480 rad mostly to make that 900D case really shine.
What I'm after most of all though, is pure performance smile.gif

Hints/tips/tricks and advice more than welcome!

I believe you can fit 2 480 rads in the 900D with no no problem. One at the top and one at the bottom facing outward, plus a few more. I would definitely recommend taking a look at the water cooling essential thread to give you an idea of what you will need:

You are going to need some type of tubing, fittings, fans and more rads. The rest is up to you on how complex and creative you want to get with your custom loop. Hope this helps to get you started thumb.gif

In the 800D you can fit 2, maybe 3... 900D is advertised as having room for 5 rads of various sizes - at the same time, 5 total inside the box. Its on my wish list. tongue.gif

800D you can fit 3 rads at most: 2 x 480, 1 x 240, and maybe 4 if you throw a 140 at the rear. 480 at top P/P, 480 bottom push only, and a 240 bottom as a sandwich. If you want bottom push/pull you will need creative mounting with the PSU.
